    Rooted, with questions about the upcoming OTA 2.3.3 update

    Hey guys/gals -

    I'm currently rooted on my DX with the Liberty 1.5 ROM. And I love it. However, I'm seeing more and more stuff about the 2.3.3 update, and I have to admit I want to try it. What is the best way to do this? I am pretty sure i'd have to unroot in order to get OTA, but i'm not sure how that works. Any help/advice/ideas is appreciated! Thanks so much, this is such an awesome community.

    Ben

    I'm sort of in the same boat. I don't have any roms but I'm rooted. Thinking of waiting until gb is able to be rooted to go through unrooting anstarting over. Also afraid of screwing something up!

    As of right now I don't think the OTA is expected from Verizon anytime soon, you can get the leak to flash through clockwork just like any other ROM but GB isn't root-able yet so that's what I'm waiting for before I flash the leak

    you can flash a gingerbread ROM? I thought you would need a different kernel to get 2.3.3? Before I rooted i was on the stock 2.2.1

    I think you have to be on the 2.3.340 system to take the GB update

    No update is available, nor will it be available any time soon. Unrooting will in no way affect your ability to update. If you would like 2.3.3 you can either:

    1) Download the leak and flash it per the instructions.
    2) Wait and see if Verizon wants to package the leak up and send it as an OTA.

    Both methods will render the same results.

    Just a quick word of caution folks. For those that want to try GB, you should familiarize yourselves with the SBF process, download the full 2.3.340 SBF file, the Moto drivers and RSDLite for Windows users, or just the SBF file and the SBF_flash file for Linux users, setup and test the process to completion, as this is the ONLY way to revert to your old setup if you are unhappy with GB..

    Thanks Mike, got a link for the files for Linux? I might give GB a try, it's killing me waiting for it to be rooted.
